Cat Deeley in talks to make an ITV primetime comeback.
WEEKS after returning to the UK having made a name for herself in the UK, Cat looks set to return to the channel which launched her career with a new Saturday night gameshow.
A pilot episode was reportedly recorded on Saturday.
A source told The Sun “Cat us a huge name” and found fame on ITV, “so to welcome her back would be a real coup for the channel”.
They added that if the “big-money game” pilot is given the green light “the dream is to get Cat to signed up as a host and launch it as a series”.
Back in September, Cat hinted at an ITV return, posting on Facebook: “SMTV reunion with Ant & Dec…All those in favour say “I””, and followers were overwhelmingly in favour.
“Yasss! SMTV followed by CDUK was the best Saturday morning TV ever!!” wrote one, with another reminiscing: “Those were the days”.
The trio had already filmed a one-off episode to mark the 30th anniversary of the kids’ show a monhth earlier.
Cat quit the US in September after 14 years, moving back to the UK with comedian husband Patrick Kielty and their son Milo.
